It is an exclusive international award granted by FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) to cities where environmental protection is a high priority.
Also in 2016 Cervia managed to qualify for this widely recognised environmental label thanks to the city's deep involvement in the protection of environment and life quality.
The strict selection was based on data, directly collected by FEE Italia, about water quality and purification, waste disposal, environmental information and education, safety and emergency plans, quality of accommodation and beach facilities and services, qualification of fishing activities.
The Blue Flag award is a symbol for the commitment of a city that looks ahead and has made of respect for life and nature its own culture, always focusing on the preservation of the fragile balance between environment and tourism.
